Episode 12: Canadian Foresight

Your adventures in National Novel Writing Month.  This podcast covers the event where writers try to complete 50,000 words in 30 days.


Ben's graph hasn't been updated since the 12th. Jim has printed the first incomplete draft of his novel. The pack stretches out in NaNoWorld and many have settled comfortably into the land of procrastination. Keep your ears open to learn a new, archaic word and a phrase used primarily in the publishing industry.

Listener Question of the Week:  Why have you done this to yourself?!
